Report of the Mayor 



To tht< Citizens and Tax-payers of the City of Rutland, 
Vt.: 

I have the honor to submit the following report 
for the year ending December 31, 1913. 

FINANCIAL. 

The Grand List of the City for 1913 was increased 
to $106,714.10 as against $95,508.72 for the year 1912. 
The tax rate was fixed at $1.70, which made an in- 
crease of about $19,000.00 in the amount available 
for general expenses. 

Of this amount the schools by law received $5,600 
in additional appropriations ; the Sta.te imposed an 
additional state-tax of 10 per cent on the Grand List 
of 1913, of which 5 per cent, $5,335, was paid in 1913; 
the regular state and county taxes exceeded the taxes 
of the previous year hy $1,060 ; and there was brought 
over from 1912 an unpaid temporary loan warrant of 
$7,000,00, The total of these increases exceeded the 
extra tax money received from the increased Grand List. 

We are carrying forward to 1914 an unpaid tem- 
porary loan warrant of $10,000.00 an increase of 
$3,000 . 00 over last year. This is accounted for by the 
iiii'i'i'iwil expense in maintaining bridgrs. amounting 
to about $1,200.00; the payment of the Creed and 



CITY OF BUT LAND 



Burton judgment, which with the costs amounted 
lo about $1,500.00 ; and the large expense in the Health 
Officer's Department, the one item of police quaran- 
tine alone being nearly $1,000.00. 

At our annual meeting it was voted to issue $15,- 
000 , 00 in bonds for additions and repairs to the Lincoln 
Boulevard School Building. $13,000.00 of these bonds 
have been sold at par to the Sinking Fund Commis- 
sioners of the City of Rutland, and the remaining 
$2,000.00 will be sold as soon as the funds are needed. 

Our net bonded debt on December 31st, 1912 was 
$400,825 . 28 and on December 31st, 1913, it was $394,- 
513.58, showing a decrease of $6,311.70. 

The appropriation and net amount earned by the 
Sinking Fund increased the amount in the fund by 
$19,311.70, this amount less the $13,000.00 in bonds 
sold, show how the decrease was made. 

The report of the City Treasurer shows in detail 
the financial transactions during the year. 



DEPARTMENT OF PUBLIC WORKS. 

The old sewer coming from Church street through 
Edsonville under the stores on Center Street and Mer- 
chants Row, crossing Merchants Row and connecting 
with the West street sewer on West street, about op- 
posite Memorial hall is in a very bad state of repair 
on the West side of Merchants Row and must soon be 
thoroughly repaired or entirely replaced, as upon in- 
vestigation conditions make necessary. In its present 
condition it is a menace to the public health and safety 
and a serious interference with the best use of property 
along its line. 



24 



ANNUAL BEPOBT 



Spell man Terrace, Summer street and that portion 
of Granger street between River street and Franklin 
street should be macadamized and provision made for 
the doing of such work the coming season. 

The department lias been to considerable pains 
to secure a thorough analysis of the material hereto- 
fore used in the construction of permanent highways 
and has also caused to be made an analysis of several 
different samples of stone from different ledges in this 
vicinity and has not as yet found a sample entirely 
satisfactory. It is possible that further investigation 
may demonstrate that economy in the expenditure of 
public funds for highways will compel the purchase 
outside the eity of material for top dressing. If, upon 
thorough investigation, such a condition should de- 
velop, T would recommend that it be pursued. 

DEPARTMENT OF CHARITIES AND CORREC- 
TIONS. 

The expenses for this department have been about 
the same as in previous years. I am satisfied that the 
financial management of that department has been 
good, and am satisfied from personal observation that 
the work of the present Overseer of the Poor, Mr. 
Brousseau, has been of the highest character. The 
Poor House I know from personal observation to be 
kept in a state of perfect cleanliness, and I am able 
also from personal observation to testify to the effi- 
ciency, consideration and kindness of both the Overseer 
of the Poor and Mrs. Brousseau. 

Certain repairs, such as plastering and painting, 
etc., which will probably cost about $250, ought to be 
made as soon as possible on the house.

DEPARTMENT OF PUBLIC SAFETY. 

The work of the police and fire departments has 
been unusually satisfactory. Discipline and efficiency 
have been promoted and maintained in both the police 
and fire departments. Police headquarters have been 
enlarged and renovated. A detention room is to be 
established at police headquarters in order that it may 
not be necessary to place every person detained in the 
common lock-up. 

It is now possible to commLiuicate at any hour 
of the day or night with police headquarters by tele- 
phone as arrangements have been made to have an 
officer on duty there during the twenty- four hours. 

THE CITY HOSPITAL. 

The eity hospital has received during the last year 
the usual appropriation from the eity treasury, and 
J find that those who have been sent there at the ex- 
pense of the city have at all times received the same 
consideration as those whose means permitted of their 
being admitted as private patients. 

Our eity hospital is today a fixed institution and 
the benfieial results obtained therefrom are of ines- 
timable value to our city. 

THE PUBLIC LIBRARY. 

The amount appropriated by the eity to the Rutland 
Free Library this past year was $500.00 in exeess of 
that of the previous year. 

This is an institution that appeals to all — -and 
under the present efficient management all patrons 
may feel assured that it will keep abreast of the times.

ANNUAL REPORT 



If the Memorial Hail, in which the library is now 
located, eonld be used exclusively for library pur- 
poses, the city would then feel obligated to keep it in 
proper condition. But as it is now, it is practically an 
unused building, except for the small space the library 
occupies. 

In concluding my report, I wish to thank the heads 
of the various departments for their faithful co-opera- 
tion at all times. 

HENRY G. BR1SLIN, 

Mayor.

Report of the Commissioners of 
Public Work 



To the .Honorable City Council: 
Gentlemen : 

STREETS. 

The increasing traffic necessitates more street 
work each year. We feel, however, that considering 
the limited funds we have at our disposal and the con- 
dition of the old crusher, not being able to install the 
new one, on account of the difference of opinions that 
existed among the hoard as to where the new crusher 
should be used and what stone should be used, have 
succeeded, in doing a considerable amount of work, 
using a stone called the "Brainard" for top stone 
or seal coat on asphalt work which we procured in 
Brainard, N. T. However, in order to carry on the 
street work economically, we should have a stone 
quarry, but it has been impossible to find local stone 
equal to trap rock for road building. 

I have sent samples from the various ledges in this 
vicinity to. testing laboratories. The reports from these 
tests indicate that the North Main Street, also several 
other ledges near, are not good road building material 
except for use in a deep fill or as a foundation for a 
harder surfacing. The stone which appeared by the 
tests to he the best for road surfacing was taken from 
the ledge on North Church Street. Two laboratories 
stated that it was the best stone which had been sent 
to them by any one from Rutland. I would reeom- 



102 



ANNUAL EEPOKT 



mend the purchasiug of this property at. a reasonable 
price. 

I also recommend the macadamizing of Spellnian 
Terrace and the paying of Grove Street heghraing at 
the asphalt and running north to State Street, and as 
much more paving as can be done with the amount of 
money we have to spend for such work. I also recom- 
mend" the completion of the unfinished portion of ma- 
cadam of South Main Street, with the State Road 
money. 

It must be remembered that onr City has now 
over fifty miles of highways and that for that amount 
of mileage we only have a little over $20,000.00. Ten 
per cent for the sidewalks and the balance for re- 
pairs and permanent work. A city in the state of New 
York that has only about 1,000 more population raises 
every twelve months a tax equal to $40,000 for the 
Superintendent of Streets together with the right given 
him under the New York State law to assess abutters 
for one-half of all pavements of asphalt or a two coat 
of poured asphalt such as is being used on State Road 
work in the state of New York. The Superintendent 
of Streets also has access to one-half the liquor money 
paid in his city and this does not include state aid 
just how much amount I do not know, and this city to 
which I refer has no greater mileage than the city of 
Rutland. 

I should recommend the placing of abutments 
nuder the Moon Brook bridge on Strongs avenue and 
making the top of reinforced concrete with cement 
side walls, also the bridge on South Main street over 
Moon Brook and the bridge on South Main street over 
Mnssey Brook, and Grove street over Tenney Brook 
the same way. 



CITY OF EUTLAND

New floors have been laid on the following bridges. 
North Grove Street 
River Street 
State Street 
Strongs Avenue 
West Street 

Also several of smaller span. That portion of 
River Street bridge spanning the railroad tracks has 
been painted, also two coats given the iron bridge 
spanning East Creek at Crescent street. That portion 
of the reinforced concrete arch bridge over North 
Main street at Tenney Brook, where broken, has been 
repaired and a wing wall built on the south side at the 
east end of the bridge. 

i 

AUTO TRUCK. 

The airto truck has been in commission 138 5-8 
days. Besides carrying stone from the quarry it has 
been used for considerable lighter trucking. Number 
of loads of stone delivered 268. 

Cost of operation: 

Labor, $343.89; Material, 896.23; Total $1,240.12. 
CRUSHER. 

During the early part of the season a No. 3 Climax 
Crusher of a catalogue capacity of 15 to 30 tons per 
hour was purchased hut no site for it has yet been 
secured. The cost of same was approximately 
$1,800.00 and $900.00 for installation and founda- 
tions, a total of $2,700.00 when in position. 

The portable crusher at the Guerin ledge near 
Center Rutland was placed in operation during the 



10-1 



ANNUAL REPORT 



season. Owing to the fact that considerable stripping 
was necessary before quarrying was commenced and 
to the uncertainty of continuing operations along per- 
manent lines in view of the fact that negotiations 
were irt progress for a new quarry site, and a delay 
in the construction of one of our streets. The cost of 
operation was higher than ordinary, and consequently 
increased the price per square yard of our macadam. 

The cost of operation as per material charged on 
requisitions: Labor, $1,643.57; material, $524.42, total, 
■$2,167.99. 

Number of cubic yards output was 1,586 3-4. 
Cost per cubic yard $1.36. 

As this included coal, oil and lumber used else- 
where or on hand the actual cost is as follows, per 
cubic yard $1.24. 

MACADAM. 

Morse Place was macadamized from Madison 
Street to Washington Street using Pioneer Road As- 
phalt as a binder in the upper two inches, and con- 
structing same by the penetration method. It was con- 
sidered necessary to lower and change the location of 
the water pipe on this street for a distance of about 500 
feet. A sub-drain about 400 feet long was constructed 
on the east side and two iron catch basins placed at 
the south end of street, Water service pipes were also 
placed for the vacant lots and all old services relaid. 
The Gas Company were also notified to do all neces- 
sary work before macadam was put on. The large 
amount of ditching on this narrow street and the con- 
struction of same before the dirt had time to consoli- 
date required more stone than contemplated. This 
street hail no foundation to start with and being a wet

soil it was considered necessary to give it a substantial 
thickness. 

Gravel roads have also been built on East, Engrem, 
Jackson and Killington Avenue, and in co-operation 
with the State the Creek road, also on Lincoln Avenue 
a gravely soil was used. 

In the laying of the water pipe on Mussey Street 
an embankment for about 200 feet was constructed 
and a substantial reinforced culvert 2 ft. x 3 ft, put 
under same, also a railing on side of embankment. 

The freshet in the spring necessitates considerable 
repair work principally on Clinton and High Streets, 
Keiley road at the south end and Water Street. We 
have also repaired with water bound macadam, por- 
tions of Strongs Avenue from Moon Brook bridge to 
Wales Street. Killington Avenue from East Street to 
Stratton road has been repaired with gravel. 

Oiling streets was done by arrangement with the 
Standard Oil Co., using an automobile distributor. 

Flushing the pavements on Center Street and 
Merchants Row was tried for a short time this season. 
The daily expense of same averaged $8.92 with a prob- 
able additional cost for cleaning sewers. Before this 
is done on an extensive plan further investigation and 
cleaning of the sewer would probably be necessary. 

The first week in May was designated clean up 
week and all rubbish was removed by the City during 
that period.

WATER SYSTEM. 

A shortage of water in the Mendon stream August 
18th necessitated a notice requesting people to refrain 
from using hose and using water only for the most 
necessary purposes. To relieve the situation a portion 
of the flow of the north branch of Cold River was 
turned into our supply. 

The Gleason reservoir was thoroughly cleaned and 
several repairs made on main pipe lines where culverts 
pass under same and embankments were washed away.

ENGINEERING DEPARTMENT. 

The work of this Department during the year has 
been, as usual, largely on surveys and plats for lines 
and grades, on streets, walks, sewer and water pipe 
construction, etc. In the performance of that work 
about 25,000 feet of surveys have been made. 

Scattered surveys, such as those necessarily are, 
take much more time than the same amount would in 
long sections. At the Brewer Place, so called, on the 
Killmgton Road surveys and plans have been practic- 
ally completed and the main pipe line staked for turn- 
ing a part of the water from the Cardell and Eddy 
brooks, so called, into the drainage area city water 
supply. 

The total amount of repairs, new construction 
work, etc., done on the public works of the City will 
be found in the accompanied reports. 

Respectfully submitted. 

p. R, R LAN CHARD, 
Commissioner of Public Works. 



Report of the Commissioner of 
Public Safety 

To the Houorable City Council : 

I respect fully submit the annual report of the 
Eire arid Police Departments. 

FIRE DEPARTMENT 

Our fire loss of the past year, a list of which is 
appended, amounts to $25,193.01. This amount, though 
larger than the fire loss of 1913, is very favorable as 
that year's loss was exceptionally small. 

The need of an automobile combination chemical 
and hose wagon is very apparent. Surrounding cities, 
some of which are much smaller than Rutland, are 
purchasing this kind of fire apparatus and they all are 
agreed that it is a great improvement over the horse- 
drawn wagon. The sale of the old fire engine and 
such other equipment as the motor wagon replaces 
would be advisable. Sometimes both teams answer 
alarms at the Center Rutland City line. This is a long 
run and if an alarm should ring from the central part 
of the city the motor wagon could make the run back 
much quicker. The difference in time might mean the 
saving in property loss of several times the cost of the 
motor wagon. I respectfully recommend the purchase 
of such a. motor wagon this coming spring. 

Some necessary repairs have been made on the 
fire alarm system. It is now working much better. 
One new alarm box has been placed on Meadow street. 
This was much needed. I recommend that the old 
pony boxes now in use be replaced by new ones and 
boxes be placed in several outlying districts where 
needed. 



1 Ifi 



ANNUAL, .UK.!'* HIT 



The hyd runts have worked very satisfactorily this 
winter but there are several streets where hydrants 
are so far apart that long lines of hose must he used. 
This means delay in getting water on the fire, also the 
greater aisk of hose bursting. I recommend that hy- 
drants be placed at such points as soon as possible. 

Much trouble has been experienced by false alarms. 
Ten of these have heen responded to by the Depart- 
ment this year. Efforts of the Department and Police 
have failed to apprehend the offenders. When dis- 
covered they should be punished as the law provides. 

I respectfully recommend that the ceiling and side 
walls at Station No. 1, first floor, be painted this com- 
ing spring. Also both hose wagons and the exercise 
wagon should be painted. This is a very necessary 
thing to have done as the wagons are much preserved 
by paint. 

During the year the Department responded to 78 
alarms made up as follows: 28 bell alarms, 40 still 
alarms, 10 false bell alarms.

POLICE DEPARTMENT. 

The personnel of the Department consists of— 
1 chief and 4 regular patrolmen, and 44 specials. One 
special police officer has done regular fluty, due to the 
necessity of having a man in the station all of the time. 
For this reason, I recommend the appointment of one 
or more regular policeman. 

This Department has rendered the City very effi- 
cient service during the year 1913. There has been no 
special disturbance or crimes committed. 

I respectfully recommend that the Board of Al- 
dermen enact an ordinance, as provided by the City 
Charter, licensing all public dance halls as places of 
amusement. This would enable the Police Department 
to control the kind of dances held in these dance halls 
and in cases where it was found necessary recommend 
the licenses be revoked. 

Some very much needed repairs and changes have 
been made in this Department, the payment of which 
was provided for by the Board of Aldermen. The 
lockup has been thoroughly disinfected and repainted 
and an electric blower installed for ventilating pur-

poses. The Police Headquarters lias been cleaned and 
painted. The adjoining room north has been converted 
into a detention room. Two detention cells have been 
provided to be used for women and boys. The room 
next north, in front of building, is now used as the. 
private office of the Chief of Police. This affords an

Grand larceny 2 

Statutory assault 1 

Furnishing liquor 1 

Burglary 2 



430 

Considerable property has been recovered and re- 
turned to its owners and several arrests have been 
made for old offences in cases where warrants were 
held by the police. 

The police signal and telephone system have, 
worked very satisfactorily and, while it is some ex- 
pense to keep in perfect working order, it is a great 
help to the Police Department. 

The expenses of this Department for the year 1913 



are as follows: 

Payroll $4,817 97 

Supplies, iri"huliittr im-w r>\ fi-coitjs 209 88 

Commissioners' salaries 100 00 

Repairs 26 20 

Telephone and signal service 195 01 

Police for carnival and board 107 25 



$5,456 09 

The inventory of this Department is on file with 
the City Treasurer and totals $568 45. 

Respectfully submitted, 

FRANK TRACY. 



Commissioner of Public Safety. 



Report of the City Attorney 



To the Honorable City Council: 

I herewith submit my report for the year last past. 

In the case of Creed & Burton against the City 
of Rutland, a suit brought to recover an account 
claimed under contract for construction work, judg- 
ment was rendered against the City and the case passed 
to the Supreme Court. The Supreme Court affirmed 
the judgment of the County Court and the judgment 
was paid by the City Treasurer. 

The ease of the Administrator of Ellen Rooney's 
estate against P. W. Clement, referred to in my 
report of last year, was enjoined by the Court of Chan- 
cery and the questions involved were heard before 
Walter P. Dutton, Special Master. No report has as 
yet been made. This was a case in which Mr. Clement, 
as Mayor, was acting for the City of Rutland and is 
being properly maintained at the expense of the City. 

The City has brought suit against the Green Moun- 
tain Marble Company for the recovery of money claim- 
ed to be due for water supplied by the city to that 
Company and will come on for hearing at the coming 
March term of the Rutland County Court. 

Suit was brought against Samuel Geno in behalf 
of the City for the same reason and it has been re- 
ferred to F. C, Archibald to hear and report. 

Several petitions have been brought to the Pro- 
bate Court asking for the committment of insane per- 
sons as state charges to the Brattleboro Retreat. Sev- 
eral patients in the Brattleboro Retreat otherwise 
chargeable to the City, have been maintained at the 



CITY OF ETJTLAJND 



1S1 



expense of their friends and relatives, and this sup- 
port having been withdrawn on account of the inabil- 
ity of such friends and relatives to maintain and sup- 
port these patients, petitions were brought before the 
Probate Court, requesting that they be committed as 
state charges. The petitions were granted in every 
ease but I think that the public good would not be sub- 
served by the publication either of names or cases. 

Respectfully submitted, 

P. M. MELDON, 

City Attorney.

Report of the Board of Health 



To the Honorable City Council: 

The Board of Health of the City of Rutland here- 
with present their report for the year 1913. 

We again call your attention to the importance of 
taking action to establish a system of municipal col- 
lection of garbage and its disposal. Such a system 
should be made to include the collection of refuse of 
yards and alleys — particularly in the rear of our busi- 
ness section. An efficient system of this sort would 
he a long step in promoting the sanitary condition of 
the city and would materially lessen the fly nuisance. 

We also call your attention to the question of 
meat supply. It is known that a considerable amount 
of meat from diseased animals is offered for sale within 
the city. At present there is no way of preventing 
this, as meat when dressed for the market shows no 
evidence of its character. To exclude meat from an 
unhealthy animal requires the presence of an inspector 
at the time of slaughter, and we urgently recommend 
that your Honorable Board consider the appointment 
of a competent meat inspector. 

We still recommend that something more perman- 
ent be done, in the way of securing better water for 
the city of Rutland, as the use of the bleach, as at 
present applied, should be regarded as only a tempor- 
ary makeshift. 



CITY OP BUTLAJNTD

We beg to report that the work of the Health 
Officer has been performed in a very efficient and satis- 
factory manner and refer you to his detailed report. 

Respectfully submitted, 

CHARLES A. GALE, M.D., President, 
N. J. DELEHANTY, M.D., 
PRANK D. WHITE.

Report of Health Officer 



To the President and Members of the Board of Health, 
Rutland, Vt. 

Gentlemen : 

I have the honor to present herewith the report 
of the transactions of the Health Department for the 
year ending December 31, 1913, 

The large number of transmissible diseases was 
mainly due to an epedemic of Measles, of which there 
were 701 cases. 

Scarlet Fever has been prevalent throughout the 
year, the early cases being of a very severe type and 
confined principally to the Italian residents. There 
were eight deaths and that the spread of this disease 
was not greater, is largely due to valuable assistance 
from the Police Department in maintaining an efficient 
quarantine. 

A very mild form of Scarlet Fever prevailed 
throughout the latter part of the year and the failure 
of properly reporting these eases made the situation 
difficult to control. 

Five patients were admitted to the Isolation Hos- 
pital and of this number there were two hotel em- 
ployees suffering from Diphtheria; I firmly believe 
that the early isolation of these two patients, averted 
an epidemic of Diphtheria at a time when a large con- 
vention was being held in the city. 

In this connection I would respectfully suggest 
that some measures be taken to settle the difficulty of 
caring for patients who are obliged to be sent to the 
Isolation Hospital on account of having a contagious 
disease. There has been considerable misunderstand- 



CITY OF RUTLAND 



131 



mg as to who shall pay the bids for nursing, medical 
care, etc. Those people are isolated for the benefit and 
protection of the rest of the community and some sat- 
isfactory arrangement should he made to pay their 
bills.

Report of the President 



OF THE 

Board of School Commissioners 

To His Honor the Mayor and the Citizens of Rutland: 

Six years ago, as President of the Board of School 
Commissioners, I reported to you the condition of our 
schools; and now that I am once more serving you in 
the same capacity I take pleasure in reporting to you 
again, and again I am able to "report progress." Our 
financial statement and the reports of the various school 
officials treat their subjects in detail. Therefore, my 
report will be a general one, emphasizing what the 
Board has done in the past year and what they hope 
to do in the future. 

Our public school system is by far the largest de- 
partment of our City government. Its property is 
valued at $260,000 upon which the insurance amounts 
to $97,000. Seventy-six persons are employed as Super- 
intendent, teachers, janitors, etc., and the educational 
needs of about 2300 children are ministered to. This 
is a large plant and one that the tax payers should not 
allow to deteriorate. 

FINANCES. 

To maintain this plant the School Board during 
the past year received $53,353.05 from the City of 
Rutland and from the State $3,777.69. The balance 
of the $60,639.31 at their disposal was derived from 
tuition, rents and receipts of an incidental nature". 



ICS 



ANNUAL REPORT 



The largest item of expense was $45,369.88 for sal- 
aries and $6,654.51 was paid out for fuel and lights. 
The expense for repairs and supplies has been kept 
down to as low a figure as possible compatible with 
the successful operation and up keep of the schools 
and the safety and comfort of the scholars. "Within 
the next two or three years much will have to he done 
to the Pine Street and Longfellow Buildings and it is, 
therefore, a fortunate thing that by the exercise of 
strict economy the School Board closes the present 
year free and clear from all indebtedness and carries 
a surplus of $508.94 over to 1914. 

CONDITION OF SCHOOL PROPERTY. 

Generally speaking the School property is in good 
Condition and the quality of the janitor service is. as 
a rule, satisfactory. The condition of the heating 
plants in the Pine Street and Longfellow Buildings 
and lack of ventilation in the High School are, 
however, matters that will very shortly need atten- 
tion. The recent fire at the Park Street Building was 
an mi fortunate occurrence and was the first severe 
fire that the schools of Rutland have experienced in 
h number of years. I'ortimalely the loss will be amply 
covered by insurance and the Building Committee 
plans to repair the building sufficiently for its imme- 
diate use and postpone all repairs of a permanent na- 
ture until the summer vacation. The teachers are to 
he congratulated upon the manner in which they 
handled the children entrusted to their keeping and the 
thanks of the School Board are extended to the mem- 
bers of the Rutland Fire Department for the efficient 
manner in which they did their work under very 
trying climatic conditions. 



CITY OF EUTLAjSTD 



At the tax payers meeting in March 1913 the citi- 
zens of Rutland generously voted a bond issue of 
$15,000 for the enlargement of the Lincoln Building, 
The City Council did not approve this bond issue to 
raise funds for these improvements until late in the 
spring, and the bids for the work were not opened 
until the July meeting of the School Board, The 
amount called for by the lowest bid was so close to the 
sum which the Board expected to receive from the 
bond issue that a conference was authorized between 
the Building Committee, the architect, and the success- 
ful bidder with a view of reducing the bid price. Sat- 
isfactory arrangements were finally made but the 
work was delayed until early in August. Since then 
it has proceeded in a rapid and satisfactory manner, 
aud in spite of the inconvenience caused by the repairs 
the teachers at the Lincoln Building have handled the 
situation in a most efficient manner. 

During the past year the exterior of the School 
Street Building has been painted one coat with the 
expectation of putting on the second coat during the 
coming summer. The interior of this building has been 
redecorated and the desks scraped and varnished. 
Necessary painting has been done at the Dana School. 
Repairs have been made to the phunbing at the High 
School and several new radiators have been installed. 
Also considerable redecorating has been done in the 
interior of this building. The annual patching of fur- 
naces has taken place at the Longfellow Building and 
the ventilating system at Pine Street has been greatly 
improved. 

During the past summer the fire insurance upon 
the school property was re-written and the amount 
was slightly increased. Tn view of the fact that our 
finances demanded the most rigid economy in adminis- 



170 



tration, it seems to me that the Board has acted very 
wisely in the matter of repairs and improvements. 

MEDICAL INSPECTION. 
I regret that the School Board could not see their 
way clear to adopt some form of Medical Inspection 
this year. In the first place the taxpayers asked for it 
and their request should have been heeded. In the 
second place I feel sure that Medical Inspection will 
surely he adopted in the near future and tbe sooner the 
School Board can adjust its finances to this added 
drain and the sooner we can ascertain the most econ- 
omical and efficient system of Medical Inspection, the 
better. When the School Board see fit to adopt this 
Inspection, I hope that it will make the assurance 
of its success doubly sure by uniting with the City 
Council, — if that body is favorable, — in an appropria- 
tion for the equipment and maintenance of a free pub- 
lie dispensary at our local hospital where the satisfac- 
tory treatment of cases of sickness, especially among 
our poorer children, may be assured. In view of the 
large number of eases of scarlet fever, chicken pox, 
and other contagious diseases among the school child- 
ren, I ordered the fumigation of every school building 
during the Christmas recess and the children were 
medically inspected upon their return to school after 
the holidays. In view of the condition, I do not think 
that I exceeded my authority in ordering this work 
done. The work was performed under the supervision 
of our City Health Officer and the results were, so far 
as I have been able to ascertain, universally satisfac- 
tory. I think that if the reports of the examining 
physicians were published, they would furnish un- 
answerable arguments in favor of School Medical In- 
spection.

THE GRADED SCHOOLS. 

Since the opening of school everything has gone 
smoothly in the Grades. It is true that there have been 
the usual cases of crowded rooms but, when two extra 
rooms are opened at the Lincoln Building, this annual 
annoyance ought to be obviated for many years at 
least. The Parent-Teachers' Associations of the various 
buildings are doing most efficient work and deserve 
the thanks and co-operation of the Board. The fact 
that 439 persons have visited the different schools 
since the beginning of the school year must be encour- 
aging to teacher and pupil alike. My only regret is 
that no more than 13 saw fit to visit our High School. 

THE HIGH SCHOOL. 

The High School opened this fall with several new 
members in its faculty. These new teachers are doing 
their share toward maintaining the high standard of 
the school in a satisfactory manner. The High School 
also opened with an increased enrollment and now the 
library has to be used for recitation purposes and a 
portion of the Assembly Hall is given over to the 
classes in drawing. While students from other towns 
are always a welcome addition to the High School, I 
doubt the wisdom, in view of the rather crowded con- 
dition, of keeping their tuition down to $36.00 a year 
when the per capita cost of educating a child in the 
Rutland High School is $44.64. In other words, these 
tuition scholars are being educated for about $8.00 
less than the actual cost. 

I regret to see so many "omit periods" in the 
High School day. I would rather see these periods 
consolidated into a conference period where a scholar 



ANNUAL KEPOHT 



could receive help from the teaches in the particular 
subject in which he is in difficulty. 

At last the School Board is in a. position finan- 
cially where they can materially strengthen the Com- 
mercial and other Vocational Departments of the High 
School, and to this end the School Board has made 
improvements in the Commercial Department and has 
appropriated $700 for uew apparatus in the Manual 
Training Department. I doubt, if there is a wood- 
working establishment in Rutland today with better 
equipment of its kind than can be found in our Manual 
Training rooms. The Board earnestly invites the co- 
operation of the business interests of Rutland in mak- 
ing these vocational training courses a success. And 
I trust that the High School Faculty will help to dig- 
nify these courses by giving the scholars the feeling 
that in vocational work they are fitting themselves for 
as useful service in the community as is the child who 
is studying Physics, German or Greek. On the other 
hand, I do not think that, by making these improve- 
ments, the School Board wishes to be understood as 
unduly emphasizing vocational' courses to the exclu- 
sion of everything else that the High School has to 
offer. As I understand it the Board's object is to 
supply the child whose mental bent is for vocational 
work with suitable equipment to make the work most 
effective. 

One clause in the recent report on High Schools 
in Vermont so exactly reflects my own views upon the 
subject that I am going to take the liberty to quote 
it. "It is clear that the secondary school should be 
organized so as to deal with every normal child; that 
it should provide widely varied opportunities for de- 
termining the central tendency of a child's abilities 



CITY OP KUTLAND 



ITS 



and disposition ; that its courses should include, not 
incidentally hut treated with intensive thoroughness, 
those fields in which the youth of the community are 
likely to find their permanent careers." 

CONCLUSION. 

It is my sad duty to report the deaths of Mr. War- 
ren R. Rice, Supervisor of "Wood Working, Mr. Hub- 
bard and Mr. Reed, janitors of the Madison and Park 
Street Schools. These men were faithful in the per- 
formance of their duties and their places will be hard 
to fill. 

Since writing my last report, two former mem- 
bers of the Board of School Commissioners have been 
called to their eternal rest, It was my privilege to 
serve for six years upon the Board with Mr, Ward and 
Mr. Lamb. I knew them well and 1 know how deep 
was their interest in everything pertaining t*o the 
schools. All honor to their memories as faithful and 
efficient public servants. 

In conclusion. 1 wish to express my thanks to our 
Superintendent and teachers for their loyal work in 
promoting the best interests of the schools of Rutland. 
I am sincerely grateful to my colleagues on the Board 
for the honor they have done me in electing me their 
presiding officer but I am even more grateful for the 
spirit of harmony which has prevailed during the 
past year and which has almost invariably manifested 
itself hi our deliberations. 

Respectfully submitted, 

HARVEY R, KINGSLEY, 
Pres. of Board of School Commissioners.

ITS 



ANNUAL REPORT 



show th;il during the natural school year ending June 
30, 1913 the enrollment, membership and attendance 
each made substantial gains and that for the first half 
of the current school year the enrollment, membership 
and attendance each increased more than thirty over 
corresponding data of the preceding year. The per- 
centage of attendance to the membership continues to 
show a general average above 94%, which is above the 
average both in this State and throughout New Eng- 
land. 

FINANCES. 

The normal resources for the schools during the 
fiscal year ending December 31st, 1913 were $60,- 
639.31 and the expenditures were $60,130.37, leaving 
an unexpended balance of $508.94. This is the first 
year in the history of the city that the receipts and ex- 
penditures for the schools have each exceeded sixty 
thousand dollars. This increase in the school revenues 
lias enabled the School Board to meet all outstanding 
bills, to purchase t° & large extent the fuel and supplies 
for the entire current year at a great saving to the 
city and to carry over a substantial surplus to next 
year. 

The proceeds of the $15,000 bond issue have pro- 
vided a four room addition to the Lincoln school build- 
ing and will leave about $1,000 for improvements on 
the furnaces in the Longfellow and Kingsley school 
buildings. 

The large revenue for the schools in 1913 was due 
almost entirely to an increase of more than a million 
dollars in the taxable property of the city resulting 
from the last quadrennial appraisal and from the law 
abolishirig offsets. The rebates from the State have 
continually decreased of late being at present only 



CITY OF liF'TMNH 



17 



about one-half the amount received from the State 
four years ago, and the amount at present received 
is likely to be still further reduced by recent State 
enactments. It is also probable that the taxable per- 
sonal property of the city may be decreased rather 
than increased in 1914. It must, therefore, be borne 
in mind that the normal revenues for the schools, not- 
withstanding their continual growth, are not likely 
to be further increased before the next quadrennial 
appraisal of city property, since the yearly increase in 
the grand list due to building operations is likely to be 
offset by diminished personal lists and by smaller re- 
bates from the State. Hence larger school expenses 
would mean a deficit in the School Department or a 
higher rate of taxation for school purposes, neither 
of which under our City Charter would be legal with- 
out a special vote of the citizens authorizing the same. 

THE SCHOOL PLANT. 

The school plant of Rutland consists of nine school 
buildings erected and owned by the city and a om- 
room school house rented by the Educational Depart- 
ment. Upon the construction, enlargement, and equip- 
ment of this plant more than a quarter of a million of 
dollars has already been expended and to maintain this 
property and its equipment in a first class condition 
adequate to the present day demands of society and 
of the State at least two per cent of the original in- 
vestment should be annually expended upon its upkeep. 
In other words, the School Board should on an aver- 
age annually expend $5,000 of its school funds to keep 
this valuable property from deteriorating. This does 
not include the cost of carrying about $100,000 insur- 
ance on the property as protection against losses. 



ANNUAL REPORT 



Speaking in gsffiOaJ terms, the school plant in this 
city is in good condition and compares very favorably 
with that in other cities and towns in New England 
of wealth and population equal to those of Rutland; 
hnt the p*lant demands constant attention; buildings 
must he painted and repaired) rooms re-decorated, heat- 
ing plants renewed, ventilation systems improved, and 
many appliances for the greater safety, comfort and 
advancement of pupils must he provided. To meet 
these constantly recurring and increasing demands the 
School Board should expend annually, at least for sev- 
eral years, five thousand dollars, and this expense 
should, in my opinion, come out of the ordinary rev- 
enues for running the schools. 

A WIDER USE OF THE SCHOOL PLANT FOR THE 
BENEFIT OF THE PEOPLE OF RUTLAND. 

Inasmuch as your City Charter requires the Sup- 
erintendent of Schools to make his report jointly to 
the City Council and to the Board of School Commis- 
sioners, I trust I may be pardoned if in discussing this 
topic I digress somewhat from the ordinary form of 
school reports. 

The public school is the child of the State created 
and nourished for the development and improvement 
of its citizenship. This institution is absolutely neces- 
sary under a republican form of government for with- 
out an intelligent, honest citizenship no republic can 
long exist. In view of this fact, our State is distribut- 
ing annually for the support of schools more than half 
a million dollars and she is encouraging and directing 
the towns and cities to raise and expend locally each 
year at least three times the amount of the State's 
contribution. It should he remembered also that all 



CITY OF RUTLAND 



1S1 



these expenditures are met ultimately by the tax- 
payers of the towns and cities. In fact, during the 
past year this city has been required by law to con- 
tribute to the State directly and indirectly for edu- 
cational purposes at least $5,000 more than she has 
so received from the State. 

It is evident, therefore, that the citizens and tax- 
payers of this city of a right own and maintain its 
school plant and should direct and control the plant 
and the schools for the greatest benefit of all her people. 

The City Council and the School Board, therefore, 
should work together in harmony in securing the great- 
est possible benefits that can be derived from the annual 
expenditure of a large sum of money in conducting 
its system of schools. 

If this spirit of harmony can prevail I see no rea- 
son why some or all of the improvements I am about 
to suggest may not be brought about. 

The High School Building has become over- 
crowded, and in order to carry on the work which the 
school is now attempting, additional accommodations 
are needed and cannot long be unheeded. The Manual 
Training Department with au enrollment of two hun- 
dred boys is housed in the basement ; the Domestic 
Science Department with an enrollment of eighty girls, 
in the attic; the Art Department with an enrollment 
of ninety pupils, in the Assembly Hall ; the Teacher 
Training Course with an enrollment of fifteen pupils, 
in the Dana building ; the Principal's office, also used 
as a recitation room, is located in the Library; the 
School Board's and Superintendent's office occupies 
a former vestibule ten by twenty-three feet { the book 
and clerk's room with its book shelves, desk, type- 



182 



ANNUAL HEP OUT 



writer and adding machine is crowded into a room 
eight by sixteen feet, and no separate rest room and 
toilet are provided for seventeen women teachers 
working in the school. 

Moreover, there is no available space in the build- 
ing for enlarging the work that should be done by the 
school ; additional space should be provided for the 
Commercial Department, aud classes in sewing, milli- 
nery, and household economies, also for classes in 
agriculture, and in wood and iron working. This 
needed space might be secured in either of hvo ways: 
by an addition of suitable dimensions to the High 
School Building, or by transferring the offices of the 
School Board, Superintendent and Clerk to the City 
Hall where the other city officers are housed, assigning 
the rooms thus vacated to the use of the Principal and 
turning over to the School Department Fire Station 
No. 2 for Manual Training and Agricultural courses. 
The propriety of the transfer of this Fire Station to 
\he uses of the school is more apparent when we con- 
sider its location upon school ground, its proximity 
to a school of over four hundred pupils, aud the result- 
ing distraction from work and danger to lives of pupils 
in ease of fire alarms at hours of dismissal. 

In return for these concessions by the City Council, 
the school plant should he available for the fullest 
development of the social and civic life of the eity : 
the school house should become the "social center" of 
the neighborhood; Playground Associations should be 
encouraged ; Vacation Schools for the needy should 
be opened ; Evening and Continuation, Schools for 
adults should be maintained; and T see no impropriety 
in granting the use of one room in each school building 
To: eity polling purposes, especially as the number of 



CITY Of RUTLAND isa 

women-voters now exceeds one thousand and at pres- 
ent many of the polling places are unsuitable and not 
in keeping with the dignity and good name of the city. 

I quote briefly from my report of 1910: "Within 
the last decade sentiment in regard to the uses of the 
school plant has radically changed. Instead of such 
school property being used a scant seven hours daily 
for one hundred eighty days during the year, less than 
one-half of the usuable period) it is becoming more and 
more the policy to put such property to the greatest 
possible use for the benefit of the citizens of the city. 

At the same time the school plant already belongs 
to the people and it is proper to employ it for their 
social activities. 

We can no longer restrict the word education to 
the few fundamental operations so often characterized 
as the three R's. The newer idea does not limit its 
application to the schooling of children but extends 
to the intellectual progress of all who would follow the 
paths of learning, 

'Every school house, as far as possible, should be- 
come a center of community life. '—Superintendent 
<2ordy of Springfield, Mass. 

'As President Eliot has pointed out, there can be 
no waste of money in public school administration 
comparable to the waste involved in permitting millions 
of dollars worth of property to remain unutilized ex- 
cept during the hours when school is kept' — Super- 
intendent Maxwell of New York City. 

'The National Education Association heartily en- 
dorses the use of school buildings and all school equip- 
ment for community interests and social betterment.' 
— Declaration of 1909."

ANNUAL EEfOKT 



This impartial and exhaustive report by expert 
investigators of national reputation should be care- 
fully studied by every citizen since it cannot fail to in- 
fluence State legislation and to some extent revolution- 
ize the* methods of instruction and subject matter 
taught in the schools of this and other states. 

It is not my intention to analyze and discuss the 
report in detail but to call attention to certain defects 
which the report finds in our present Educational Sys- 
tem and the remedies suggested. 

"There must be adopted in the elementary school, 
and later in the high school, a course of study related 
to the life of the child; it is clear that the domination 
of the college and of preparation for college has had 
an undue effect upon the courses of study and the 
methods of instruction even in the elementary schools, 
ninety-five per cent of whose children are never to 
enter college." 

"As a minimum the school should do at least 
three things for the child— teach him self-discipline, 
teach him to think, and strengthen his relations to the 
social and industrial interests of his community." 

"The purpose of the public elementary school 
cannot be'other than assistance in developing character 
and making good citizens. On this ground alone can, 
the expenditure of public money for schools be justi- 
' fied," 

"The course of study at present arranged for the 
grades aims to prepare for the high school. In a few 
particulars only does it attempt to meet the child's 
present needs." 

"So far as English in the elementary schools is 
concerned, little attention is given to adapting the sub- 
ject to the child's' needs or interests. The course is 
based on a supposition that the child will enter the 



CITY OI 1 RUTLAND 



1ST 



high school, and that the work given is that which is 
best calculated to prepare for that end. The fact 
that only a few of these boys and girls will enter high 
school is constantly ignored." 

"For the sound development of secondary educa- 
tion in the future the curriculum must be freed from 
college control. The college should indeed dominate 
the secondary school, but its domination should be 
exerted through the teachers. What the secondary 
school needs is not primarily a curriculum — least of all 
a college-made and college-guarded curriculum — but 
good teaching. The present subordination of the 
teacher to the curriculum must foe reversed and the 
curriculum he subordinated to the teacher, if there 
is to he real progress." 

"The existing emphasis upon the curriculum with 
its 'points' and 'credits' and pages to be 'covered,' its 
arbitrary standards and its logical balance of studies 
lias gone far to obscure the real meaning of educa- 
tion as a process of choosing and applying those 
tilings that will secure the strongest and most profit- 
able reaction in a child." 

"Less than ten per cent of the pupils in Vermont 
high schools go to college, but the studies that the col- 
leges require of them crowd out from the curriculum 
all forms of instruction, aside from commercial 
branches, that might make the other nine-tenths of 
the students happier and more efficient in their future 
occupations, whether they he farming at business, (■•arh- 
ing or home-making. " 

"It is clear that the secondary school should be 
organized so as to deal with every normal child ; that 
its courses should include and treat with intensive 
thoroughness, those fields in which the youth of the 



i§8 



ANNUAL EEPORT 



community are likely to find their permanent careers; 
and in the arrangement of euiTienlnm and program, 
in the ordering of general school activities, in the 
training and spirit of the teaching staff, the central 
purposes should he to establish the child in the. noblest 
mental and spiritual relations with life." 

"An avowed shift of emphasis in education should 
he made from the curriculum to the child, involving 
the intimate and continuous study of each individual 
child to determine what his characteristics and needs 
are. ' ' 

"Even the continuity of a course involving extra- 
vagant expenses — for one or two pupils — might well 
be sacrificed if the teacher's time or salary could be 
invested elsewhere to greater advantage." 

"The school problem in Vermont, as in all other 
states, lies in the question how best to utilize the time 
of children from six to eighteen years old, so that these 
shall contribute in the most direct way both to citizen- 
ship and to economic efficiency." 

"A wise program in the formation of vocational 
schools would seem to be the reform of the public 
school system so that the youth of Vermont may be 
educated toward the occupations of the communities 
in which they live." 

The suggestions and recommendations quoted 
from this report are directed against the public 
school system of the State rather than against any 
particular school or locality. It is doubtful, however, 
if the schools in any town or city in the State can 
plead "not guilty" to the indictment. 

The public schools of Rutland are no exception 
to this general rule. The colleges dictate to the High 
School ; the High School dictates to the grades, and 



CITY OP EUTLA^D 



159 



under this scheme of fitting for college the pupil too 
ofteu is turned away from the studies that would best 
fit him for his home and community duties or else he 
drops out of school altogether since the school offers 
little or no training for his life's work. 

In speaking thus I do not wish to be understood as 
underestimating the value of preparing for college in 
our High School. I simply wish to emphasize the fact 
that tin- great majority of the pupils in this city never 
expect to go to college. 

Again, little or no special attention is given to the 
training of pupils who must of necessity fail to com- 
plete a course. In general one-half of the pupils of the 
fourth grade in our city never complete the ninth grade 
work ; one out of every four pupils entering the ninth 
grade never enters the High School; one out of every 
five in the "D" Class in the High School never enters 
the "C" Class (more than ten per cent of the " D " 
Class have already dropped out) ; less than half of the 
pupils who enter the High School ever graduate, and 
statistics show that throughout the .State only about 
five per cent of the public school pupils ever enter col- 
lege. 

At present this city is expending approximately 
$60,000 annually in running the schools. Of this amount, 
$20,000 is being spent upon the High School with an 
avera ge membership of about four hundred pupils ; 
the remaining $40,000 is expended upon the elementary 
schools with an average membership of about sixteen 
hundred pupils. 

In some of the more favored communities of New 
England the average membership in the grades is lim- 
ited to twenty-five pupils to a room, but in Rutland, 
with the exception of the Gilrain Avenue and the four 



100 



TiEPORT 



small rooms in the School Street Building, each graded 
school in October had an average membership of forty- 
two pupils, while at the same time in the High School 
each week there were twenty-seven recitations with five 
or less pupils in the ehiss and one hundred fifty periods 
entirely vacant with no recitation. Here is an unjust 
distribution of money arid teaching force, and calls 
either for a larger amount of school funds and teaching 
force devoted to the grades or a re-adjustment of the 
present funds and teaching force. It should be our aim 
to reduce the average membership in OUT grades to at 
least, thirty -five pupils to a room, which, with our present 
membership, would require the opening of six or seven 
additional rooms. 

The Carnegie lieport emphasizes the need of utili- 
tarian and vocational training and suggests that this 
work be commenced in the grammar grades. If the 
conclusion deduced in the report is correct, that public 
funds for public schools can he defended only on the 
ground of improving citizenship and securing greater 
efficiency for life's work, then, it is at least implied that 
school funds can with propriety be expended upon those 
enterprises which make for the general intelligence and 
efficiency of a people whether under or above compul- 
sory school age. 

On this ground I believe the School Board of this 
city should encourage Vacation, Evening, and Continua- 
tion Schools open to all persons who really desire to 
continue their education and become more efficient and 
intelligent citizens. 

MEDICAL INSPECTION 

By recent State enactment School Boards are 
authorized to appoint medical inspectors for the schools 



CITY OF RUTLAND 



191 



provided the voters at their annual meeting so instruct 
the Commissioners. 

At the last annual meeting of the city Medical In- 
spection was authorized. The School Commissioners 
after due deliberation appointed a. sub-committee to 
investigate this subject as related to the schools in this 
city and to report, to the full Board. Inasmuch as the 
vote in favor of Medical Inspection was small the School 
Board directed its sub-committee to insert an article in 
the Warning for the coming annual meeting for the 
vGters to again pass upon this subject j and it is proh- 
cMe that, if the voters still favor it, the School Board 
will be prepared to carry out their wishes in a thor- 
oughly effective and business-like manner. 

Medical Inspection in the schools is based upon the 
idea that the well developed child shoidd possess a sound 
hotly as well as a sound mind ; the physical side of the 
rhild's nature is receiving more and more attention 
from educators, and, since school attendance is compul- 
sory, the school officials are bound to protect the child's 
health while in school and as far as possible remove 
physical defects, too often overlooked by careless or 
indigent parents, and which prove so often a serious 
handicap to the child. 

The Vermont State Board of Health favors Medical 
Inspection and suggests three details of the work. 
"Mrst — The early detection and exclusion of conta- 
gious diseases ; second — Routine examination and records 
cf the physical condition of all school children, and 
third — Responsibility for the sanitation of the scliool 
plant." 

I am convinced that this subject will commend itself 
to all thoughtful parents who have children in the 
schools and I believe a plan of inspection can be adopt-

ed that will prove a great protection to pupil's health, 
and, at the same time, prevent serious interruption of 
school work due to epidemics and eoirnnimicable dis- 
eases.

Report of the Principal of the 
High School 

Rutland High School, February, 1914. 

To the Superintendent of Schools, 1). B. Locke ; 

I have, herewith, the pleasure of submitting to yon 
my fifth anuual report of the High School. 

While statistics can give only facts and never, 
by any possibility, reasons for facts, and while reasons 
for facts are much more interesting than the facts 
themselves, sometime facts, revealed by statistics, are 
in themselves interesting. It is in the hope that tius 
may prove to be true in the following statistics that 
I offer a few : the enrollment of the school thus far 
this school year is 483, an increase of 163 since the 
Board provided additional room in 1908. Of that num- 
ber 29 have, up to this date, withdrawn from school, 
and it is interesting to note the reasons for their leav- 
ing school. Pour have gone elsewhere to school, 3 
have moved out of the state, 2 have married, 10 have 
obtained positions in business of bue kind or other, 
and the remainder, all girls, are staying at home, niak- 
rr-g themselves useful there in various ways. Considering 
that, every year, many enter high school merely as a 
makeshift, until something ''turns up," the loss of 29, 
the first half year, out of 438 is neither great nor sur- 
prising. It is further interesting to see from what 
classes the losses have come. Prom the post-graduate

I> Class 14.

ANNUAL REPORT 



Closely related to this group of statistics is an- 
other, smaller hnt even more interesting. In the fall 
of 1913, 38 of the graduates of Rutland High 
School entered college or some other school for ad- 
vance work, and up to the present time this year 42 
have expressed their desire to take advantage, next 
year, of the same opportunity. It is this awakening 
of a desire in boys and girls to seize opportunities to 
fit themselves for their best in every way that gives 
to any school its highest claim to fine? service to the 
community in which it stands; and, in view of the fact 
that it is better for the hoy to incite him to higher 
effort than to persuade him to take lines of least resist- 
ance, no matter what his path in life, may be, and of 
the further fact that it is a finer service to the com- 
munity to keep open for all the door to larger oppor- 
tunity than to close it against even one by inducement 
to a. premature choice of vocation, it seems to me 
that the phrase, "fitting for life,"' is already showing 
itself to be both specious and misleading. Tn other 
words the boy who can he awakened to see and incited 
to lay hold of larger opportunities for himself is pretty 
sorely "fitting himself for life." , 

At this writing T am not able to give a report of 
the work of our boys and girls in college this year, 
as the first semester examinations a;e hut just over, 
hut for the past four years reports have been uniformly 
up to the expectations of the school. There has been 
growing, all this time, a very wholesome influence of 
the boys and girls in college Upon those coming up in 
the school, which is showing itself in more serious 
work and in a greater desire among an increasing 
number, to fit themselves as well as possible for future 
service. A fine instance of this influence and interest 



CITY OF RUTLAND 



was shown iu the fait in the unselfish and unstinted 
service of one of our graduates on the football field. 
It lias I iv 1 1 a wry great pleasure to watch lite growth 
of this spirit that gives and asks no return and that 
urges others to their best. 

To the good work in the school this year some 
other things have greatly helped, and for these sin- 
cere thanks are due to the School Commissioners, an 
acknowledgment I am glad to make. The additional 
teacher has relieved the overwork of the past two years 
and given to the teaching force juat that margin which 
makes it feel it has time to prevent the many little, 
miobstrusive, hut important things from being un- 
done. The continuance of the solid session on Fridays 
has completely justified itself in every way, e. g,: The 
tardiness for the fall term of fifteen weeks, 120 actual 
sessions, with an average daily attendance of con- 
siderably over 400, amounted to 214, or about one tar- 
diness for every two pupils for the fall term. Or to 
put it in a more striking way, out of a possible 48,000 
tardinesses there were only 214. This is the first year 
in which all the entering class have begun the Algebra 
in the High School, and, as far as can be judged in 
one-half year, the change is fulfilling all that was ex- 
pected of it. Especially grateful are the ampler spare 
and larger equipment given to the teacher of drawing, 
and the larger amount of" the time of the teacher of 
Domestic Science at the disposal of the high school. 
The great increase of pupils in both these departments 
is warrant for the wisdom of the Board in granting 
what was asked for them. Last, but not least, is a sep- 
arate room for the principal's office; the value of this 
addition is not easily put into words. 

I cannot conclude without an additional word of 



ANNUAL REPORT 



thanks to the Board of Commissioners for their con- 
tinued confidence in the management of the high 
school and an assurance in the name of all the teachers, 
that our, hest efforts will continue to be put forth not 
only to maintain but to enhance the excellence of the 
High School. 

Respectfully submitted, 

ISAAC THOMAS, 

Principal. 



Report of the Supervisor of 
Music 



To David B. Locke, Superintendent of Schools: 

I here present my report as supervisor of music for 
the year ending with December, 1913. During part 
of the past year some schools have been laboring under 
adverse conditions which have prevented the best re- 
sults in the study of music, but the outlook is now 
brighter and I feel confident of more rapid gain on 
the part of the pupils in this really important, although 
sometimes underated, study. There is a slow but sure 
increase of interest manifested which betokens good 
fruit to come. A system of sight reading from indi- 
vidual slips is about to be re-installed in the lower 
grades after several years of disuse. A frequent resort 
to the use of these slips keeps the teacher constantly 
informed as to the ability and progress of each pupil, 
and this knowledge properly acted upon by the teacher 
should measurably increase the musical attainment of 
the pupils. A feature of music study which is very 
interesting and instructive to the pupils, is the recog- 
nition of phrases of songs which are placed upon the 
board, frequently in different keys from the book ver- 
sion. The ability of attentive pupils to name the 
phrase from mentally hearing it, is very gratifying, 
and this phase of the study is being developed as much 
as time will permit in all but the lowest grades. The 
result of more systematic work with young, changed 
voices in the grammar grades is becoming manifest in 
the freshman class of the high school, each year show- 



ANNUAL REPORT 



ing a greater number of tenors and basses conversant 
with their new clef and part progressions, and courage- 
ously doing their share of the assembly singing. The 
study of music in the upper classes of the high school, 
where 1 it is elective, has not been undertaken during 
this first term. 

The plan of encouraging the young ninth grade 
players of orchestral instruments to begin rehearsing 
together in preparation for such work in the high 
school orchestra will doubtless result in a larger and 
better band of players than to delay such work until 
their freshman year. Rehearsals are held twice a week, 
the pupils attending in small groups to insure more in- 
dividual attention. 

Since the last report the schools have sung before 
the public but three times ; at the Lincoln day lecture ; 
at the Memorial day exercises of the grammar grades, 
and at the commencement of the high school. 

The orchestra gave some selections at the Athletic 
club fair, and at the class day exercises, and furnished 
creditably all the instrumental music at the commence- 
ment held in the Shrine theatre. 

Tiesp ectf ully submitted, 

CHAS. V. H. COAN, 

Supervisor of Music. 



Report of the Supervisor of 
Drawing 

To David B. Locke, Superintendent of Schools: 

The report of the Supervisor of Drawing for the 
year 1913-14: is hereby presented. 

A former art director of a Massachusetts town, in 
answer to the question 'Why do we study Art!' says: 

"We study art that we may learn to see under- 
standing!}' and feelingly, to find beauty and truth 
in the things which surround us, to be filled with en- 
thusiasm for all hand work which requires skill, thus 
developing power to create something expressive of 
the thought and character of the individual nature. 1 ' 

So many people seem to think that art is taught 
in the public schools solely to develop the power to 
draw straight lines, for we often hear the remark, 
"When I was in school, 1 never could draw a straight 
line." The ability to draw straight lines is not the 
aim of art instruction. The acquaintance of the gen- 
eral public with the work accomplished, gained by a 
visit to the annual school exhibit or by visiting classes 
throughout the year, would disprove this idea. 

It also seems to be the conviction of many that 
good results are wholly dependable upon genius. If 
that were true, art instruction could not legitimately 
be included in the public school curriculum for, to 
<~;uote from one authority, not more than one child in 
a hundred has real talent. Art is for all, not for the 
talented child alone, and good results are dependent 
chiefly upon good teaching and in the primary grades 
are solely dependent upon the instruction given. 



200 



ANNUAL REPORT 



Qui' aim is to train the power to see, the power 
to express oneself and the power to appreciate the 
beautiful and lastly to discover talent. The same 
principles are followed year hy year with as varied 
an application and method as possible. In the fall 
and spring nature furnishes most of the material and 
in the winter manufactured articles of beauty of line 
and color serve as models. The next step is to put 
into practice in pure and applied design, the knowledge 
gained. To make the work in design of practical 
value, an attempt is being made to correlate the design 
in grades six to nine with the work in sewing. 

There are no new developments in the grade work. 
Two teachers' meetings are held monthly for teachers 
of grades one and two and of grades three and four 
and other meetings are held as occasion recpiires. 

An advance has been made in the department of 
art instruction in the High School. The rear of the 
assembly hall is now used for both the mechanical ana 
freehand classes. The number of drawing tables 
has been doubled and for use in the freehand 
classes a screen has been made, easts for charcoal work 
have been purchased and a set of new models for ob- 
ject drawing are soon to be placed in the class room. 
A cabinet, in harmony with the furnishings of the 
room, for the keeping of supplies is greatly needed. 

Two new mechanical drawing classes composed 
of manual training boys are about beginning the in- 
struction to correlate with the manual training. 

The increase in size of the teacher training class 
and a better arrangement in the amount of time de- 
voted to art have made the work in ore satisfactory 
than heretofore. A great hindrance to good results 
with these classes is a lack of foundation training.

Some have never had instruction in drawing before 
they enter the class and some who have completed 
three or four years of high school work have never 
elected the subject. 

To repeat a statement in last year's report, all who 
have any idea of teaching ought, without fail, to elect 
drawing as a part of their high school course. 

The number of pupils electing drawing' in the High 
School this year has more than doubled that of the last 
few years and the total registration is larger than it has 
ever been. 

The work of our public schools was displayed at 
the Dana School last June and efforts were made to 
secure the attendance of parents and friends, the in- 
terest shown being somewhat better than the year 
before. All who help to make the exhibit a success 
would be greatly encouraged and helped by a still 
larger attendance at our next annual exhibit. 

Teachers and pupils show much interest and the 
cordial and friendly spirit in which all co-operate 
makes the work a great pleasure and cannot fail to 
secure good results. Sincere thanks are tendered to 
all who give and receive instruction and to all who 
assist in so many other ways. 

Respectfully submitted, 

MARION G. LEES.

Report of the Supervisor 
of Manual Training 

To David B. Locke, Superintendent of Schools: 

In presenting my second report as supervisor of 
manual training, I would like to divide it into two 
distinct parts: 

1— "What We Are Doing." 

2_ "What We Would Like To Do." 

Before dealing with the first topic, I would like 
to say just a word regarding industrial education. 

We are finding as time rolls on that industrial 
education is rapidly pushing its way toward the front, 
and that our classical courses, however perfect they 
may be, are steadily decreasing in numbers. 

Educators the world over are devoting a great deal 
of time in bringing this important branch of education 
to the front. Professor James states : "The most colos- 
sal improvement which recent years have seen in sec- 
ondary education lies in the introduction of manual 
training schools, not because they will give us a people 
more handy and practical for domestic life and better 
skilled in trades, but because they will give us citizens 
with an entirely different intellectual fibre." 

The foregoing in brief is what these courses in 
manual training arc doing for the future citizens of 
this country. 

"What We Are Doing." 

The courses in manual training in this city com- 
mence with the seventh grade and continue through 



CITY OF RUTLAND 



203 



the first year in the high school. Commencing with 
the simplest exercises possible the boy gradually be- 
comes accustomed to the use of the different tools by 
a series of graded articles which bring into use a new 
tool or a different way of using an old tool. 

The boy, as he continues, gradually finds himself 
attempting a number of cabinet-making problems, 
which are not only interesting, but become useful in 
the home or elsewhere. 

The course being elective in the high school, we 
try to give the student in the ninth grade some simple 
blue print reading which is interspersed throughout 
with estimating the amount and cost of stock consumed 
in the construction of his different exercises. 

The high school work, which is largely cabinet 
work, has interspersed throughout the course the 
mathematics involved and also lectures on the different 
woods, tools, etc., as well as a complete knowledge of 
simple blue print reading. The. student also is of ser- 
vice to the school by being able to repair articles which 
become mutilated during the school year such as scrap- 
ing and re-finishing desks, seats, etc., thereby saving 
the city the expense of new ones. 

The efficiency of this department has been greatly 
increased by the installation of satisfactory machinery, 
thereby placing it in a position to undertake any 
problem that might arise in the mind of the student 
at work. 

"What We Would Like To Do." 

A short time ago we were fortunate in having with 
us Mr. Hunter, supervisor of the manual training de- 
partment of Fitchburg, Mass., who addressed the teach- 
ers on the subject of "Part Time System." To my 



304 



ANNUAL KEPOHT 



mind, we have in tliis city excellent accommodations 
for starting a similar course, and conferring with a 
number of manual training students upon the subject, 
I find that there is considerable enthusiasm among 
them fer the establishment in Rutland of such a course. 

We are going to benefit the employer by giving 
him a more educated apprentice and eventually a better 
and more skilled mechanic than he could get in any 
other way. We are also going to double the capacity 
of the manual training department of our high school 
which may delay for a time an increased expense to 
the city by the addition of more space. 

In explanation of the above we must understand 
that one-half of the students are at work in the shop 
while the other half are at work in school and visa 
versa, alternating each week. 

The hearty co-operation of the parents, manufac- 
turers and those interested in the Industrial Course 
will do much in establishing the "Part Time System" - 
in this city. 

Commencing with the next school year, the super- 
visor would like to have installed a sufficient number 
of lathes so that those wishing to continue their work 
in this line through a second year may do so. 

In conclusion, I wish to express my sincere appre- 
ciation to the Board of School Commissioners of this 
city for the purchase of the necessary equipment need- 
ed for the further development of this department. 

In the recent death of my co-worker, Warren R, 
Rice, the schools have suffered the loss of a faithful 
teacher and friend ; in his department, one^ who was 
beloved by all and who untiringly performed the 
duties required of him. His hearty co-operation aided 
to a great degree in making the work most successful 



CITY OF RUTLAND

and his untiring efforts along these lines will not soon 
he forgotten, especially by those whose privilege it was 
to be so closely associated with him. 

Respectfully submitted, 

HAROLD B. ADAMS, 

Supervisor of Manual Training.

Report of the Supervisor of 
. Domestic Science 



To David E. Locke, Superintendent of Schools: 

A report of the work of Domestic Science for the 
year 1913-1914 is herewith presented. 

Naturally, with a change of teachers, the outline 
and methods of the Domestic Science course has been 
changed, especially in sewing. On account of the con- 
tinual change of teachers every year or two, there should 
he a regular outline of the course in sewing which could 
be adapted to the method of the individual teacher, but 
which would be fixed firmly enough to allow the child- 
ren a steady progress. 

Sewing is taught in the last four years of the gram- 
mar school grades. In the sixth and seventh grades the 
object of the course is to teach the child to take class 
directions, to learn the technic of making stitches, to 
apply these stitches to articles of use, and to awake an 
interest in sewing. 

This year the sixth grade has less than a half hour 
and the seventh grade three-quarters of an hour of 
sewing a week, owing to the very large attendance in 
the various schools. These periods are made possible 
by the kind assistance of Mrs. Cardelle of the Teacher 
Training Class. The children in the sixth grade learn 
the stitches first on canvas, then try them on cotton 
cloth, and when sufficient knowledge has been attained 
they are applied to some useful article. The work of 
the next year is to acquire more skill in sewing by mak- 



CITY OF RUTLAND 



SLIT 



iug articles for themselves and to learn how to darn, 
patch, mend, and make button-holes. 

In other years the eighth grade has made dolls' 
clothing but now they are making a set of uudergar- 
ments for themselves. The pieces are large and we are 
handicapped by lack of room, equipment, and time, 
but by doing outside work the girls have mauaged very 
well. 

This year the ninth grade is not doing the work 
which next year's class will do. The work will begin 
by making a simple apron for machine practice, con- 
tinue with making the cooking outfit, and the rest of 
the year will bo devoted to dressmaking. This year 
dressmaking will be omitted because of inexperience in 
handling large pieces of cloth, and for lack of time. 

Cookery is studied during the first two years of the 
high school course. The number of girls electing cook- 
ery lias increased continually so that the Domestic 
Science teacher must give two entire days a week to the 
High School, It is to be regretted that this course is 
elective and that the credit and time given to it are not 
equivalent to the benefit which should be derived. How- 
ever, it is hoped that a four year course will be started 
next September, because sewing and cookery are only 
a part of the study of home-making: the questions of 
home organization, management, care, repair, sanita- 
tion, and decoration are also important and should 
have their place in Domestic Science in every High 
School. These subjects must, however, be preceded by 
some knowledge of physics, chemistry, and physiology; 
and should be surrounded by academic work in English. 
Languages, History, and Mathematics. 

In the first year the classes are instructed in the 
complete care of the kitchen, the study of and ways of 



SOfi 



ANNUAL EEPORT 



cooking the various foods; fruits, vegetables, starches, 
cereals, sugars, milk, butter, cheese, eggs, meat, fish, gela- 
tine, salads, and frozen desserts. The class is also 
taught the elementary rules for table-setting, for plann- 
ing, preparing, and serving simple meals. 

The work in the sophomore year begins with pre- 
serving foods, a few lessons on reviewing principles 
learned in the previous year, and is followed by a com- 
plete series of lessons on batters and doughs, pastry, 
salads, frozen desserts. The subject of nutrition and 
diet is extended covering the ground of composition of 
body and food, classification and uses of foods, diges- 
tion, nutritive and fuel value, and digestibility of foods, 
planning of cooking and serving a well-balanced meal. 

In closing I wish to thank the teachers and parents 
for their kindly interest ainl willing co-operation, and to 
extend to them the assurance of a hearty welcome if 
they care to visit any of the classes in Domestic Science. 
I also wish to thank Mrs. Cardelie of the Teacher Train- 
ing Class, who has responded so enthusiastically to my 
appeal for assistance, thereby making my elementary 
work possible by taking five of my classes. 

Respectfully submitted, 

FLORENCE GOLDSMITH, 

Supervisor of Domestic Science and Art.

Report of the Principal of 
Teacher Training Class 



To Mr. 1). B. Locke, Superintendent of Schools: 

I hereby submit my report for the Teacher Train- 
ing Class ot the Rutland high school. 

The enrollment this year has exceeded that of any 
-n- since the course has been iu existence. One Z 
^tog feature of the work is that the training is 
■ tm- ing more and more those who have been out m 
<■ m md who realize their incompetence to deal with 
rural problem successfully without preparation 
8at , lsfaetor >' ^ce of efficiency in handling the 
vonuger children and in meeting difficulties wisely hm 
already been attained, and it is desirable that the re- 
maunng half year be m profitably spent in work with 
older children. 

Considerable substituting has been done by the 
members of the class. I believe all of the substituting 
£ mdm "l* 10 «» seventh fe some instances, in 
the grammar grades, has beeu done by members of 'tb, 
j™ Th( ' S reatei ' P ar t of this work I have supervised 
but on account of conditions that usually obtain in sub- 
slit Htm*, the impossibility of being carefully prepared 
tor the assignment in the majority of eases. I consider 
it the least valuable of the training work 

The pedagogical library for use in this course has 
been mereased by twelve volumes this year so that wc 
»ave a valuable working library of thirty-eight volumes 
besuies useful texts that are the gifts of publishers 



ANNUAL KPiPOltT 



The report of the recommendations of the Carnegie 
Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching is not 
completely before us as yet. There is enough, however, 
to lead 'us to believe that in the fuller report the course 
is worked out with a degree of detail that, if followed, 
ought to lead to its greater effectiveness. Prom the 
outset I have recommended that candidates for this 
course be equipped with a knowledge of specific high 
school branches, viz., chemistry, sewing, cooking, zool- 
ogy and agriculture, so that the work of the one year's 
training could be more intensively given over to prin- 
ciples, methods and management. This means that a 
prospective teacher would need to be a candidate for 
this course earlier in her high school career than the 
senior year or the year after graduating. 

I wish to emphasize, too, the need of general schol- 
arship as a sine- qua mm qualification for tins course. 
The whole scheme is founded upon the hypothesis that 
with three or four years of high school work the student 
is fitted to begin vocational studies. This work is some- 
what delayed and, consequently, lessened hi its extent 
if a pupil enters without a knowledge, for example, of 
paragraph structure or ability to analyze simple prob- 
lems. 

The practice school has taken on another grade and 
now includes the first three primary grades, with an 
enrollment for last term of ninety-oue. 

Respectfully submitted, 

MARGARET M. T1EALEY, 

Supervisor of Teacher Training Course.

Report of the Truant Officer 



To H. B. Locke, Superintendent of Schools: 

1 beg leave to submit herewith my report as 
truant officer for the year ending December 31, 1913, 

In my department, there were the usual efforts 
put forward for securing accurate data as to home 
discipline in the matter of school attendance. 



I have to offer the following: 

Nurabftr of eases reported 1223 

Xnmlj.-r of cases personally investigated 1082 

Cases of legal and reasonable excuses 1165 

Number of truancy cases , 

Sent to Industrial school j 



The phrase, 'Legal and reasonable excuses/ used 
above is intended to cover the cases of epidemics of 
'•"Ms, scarlet fever, chickenpox and other juvenile ail- 
ments. It must be noted that the cases of scarlet fever, 
chickenpox and other minor indispositions ought to be 
considered and taken into account as to attendance 
where ten days have consecutively elapsed from the 
first day of absence. Tt should also be remembers] 
that school attendance materially decreases by reason 
of fear of epidemics. This situation is one winch can 
only be handled by expert medical attention and rigid 
hygienic supervision. 

Attendance has been lower for the past year over 
the preceding five years in percentage. There have 
been certain eases reported (but not investigated by 
inys. lf) by thr health officer to the superintendent of 



212 



ANNUAL EEPOKT 



schools ; these have been duly sent to me. 

Truancy eases have been generally confined to 
children of' tender years. In most cases the truants 
have not arrived at an age where a knowledge ot the 
offense could justly be attributed to them 

During the past year I have expended #140 tor 
clothing for indigent school pupils. On request, I made 
and seemed a requisition upon the Overseer ol the 
Poor for the sum of $S for needed wear. In all proha- 
1 afty it will have occurred to yon and the other local 
educational authorities that our school facilities are 
h,ing severely taxed by the influx of indigent pupils 

from out of town. _ 

It ought to be noted that the decrea.se in sell on I 
..tte-danee hereinbefore mentioned should be considered 
with reference to the various epidemics spoken of. 
A school 'scare' is much like a theater panic. Every- 
thing depends upon the exercise of the common sense 
of parents and teachers; there should be no hostility 

in this regard. > 

I take this opportunity of expressing my thanks 
for the cordial co-operation of the members of t he 
Caching faculty and the well-wishers for our schools. 
Respectfully submitted, 

J. J. HICKEY. 

Truant Officer.

Auditor's Report 



To the Honorable Council of the City of Rutland, Vt. : 

The Auditors for this City respectfully make their 
annual report for the year 193 3 — that they have 
thoroughly examined, audited and verified the books 
ol' tlie City Treasurer, the City Clerk, the Overseer of 
the Poor, the Superintendent of the City Schools and 
(lie Sinking Kiuid Commissioners. 

The Auditors also have examined the books of the 
City Constable and Collector as far as possible and 
have cheeked from his hooks the amount of money 
paid liy him to the Treasurer and abatement of taxes 
nnulc by Hie Board for the Abatement of Taxes. 

They have found that the account books in all of 
these depn rtnimls ol 1 lie Cily's a flairs have liven Uepl 
in a neat, accurate and businesslike manner, that all 
money received by the City's officers in these depart- 
ments seems to have been entered in the proper way and 
under the proper accounts and duly accounted for in 
all respects, and all money paid out has been expended 
against duly authorized and authenticated vouchers 
on file in the respective departments, and that the 
Cash Balance in the hands of the City Treasurer at the 
end of the year 1913, was exactly the amount which 
should he in his possession according to the account 
hooks kept by hi in. 

They congratulate the City on the faithful ser- 
vices rendered to the City by its officers as named 
above, their work will compare most favorably with 
similar work done in other cities of New England and 
elsewhere. 



214 



ANNUAL EEPOET 



As far as the Auditors have been able to ascertain, 
there were no bills outstanding against the city at the 
end of the year 1913 on account of the School Depart- 
ment. 

The outstanding 1913 accounts, unpaid at the end 
of the year 1913 against the city amounted to about 
$2,300, made up in part by the amount due for a stone 
crusher, about $1,800 and by about $500 due for as- 
phalt work on sidewalks. 

The City Treasurer has made of his own volition, 
assisted by the proper officers, an appraisal, in part, 
of the City's water system, public buildings, perman- 
ent and other machinery tools and supplies on hand, 
and the auditors refer to his report for the items of 
such an appraisal. 

The City Auditors again call urgent attention to 
the fact that the City Treasurer carries on his books 
as an asset of the City an acemnulation of old and 
partly outlawed accounts receivable, some dating back 
to the organization of the City amounting approxi- 
mately to $3,000. These accounts are not of any value 
whatever, many of the parties against whom these 
accounts run being dead and their estate settled. The 
Auditors again submit that the Treasurer be relieved 
of these accounts by having them abated by resolution 
of the City Council in proper form. 

The Auditors further request in the interest of 
the City's welfare that all City Officers, without any 
exception, who come into possession of funds belong- 
ing to the City be required by an order of the City 
Council to that effect, to turn such funds, at once and 
without any delay whatsoever, over to the City Treas- 
urer. Under the practice now prevailing some of the 
City Officers keep such money received by them in 



CITY OF RUTLAND 



315 



thwr official capacity in their possession an unHrnited 
length of time— paying it over to the City Treasurer 
when they choose and see fit to do so. This entails a 
loss of money to the City as the City receives interest 
from the banks where its deposits are kept— and the 
practice of some of the City's officers as explained 
above ought to be stopped at once and not permitted 
to continue any longer. 

Respectfully submitted, 

C. TURNER, 
JAKE HEYMAN, 
GEO. C. COBB, 

City Auditors.
